U.S. EPA Informational Webinar for Tribes on Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) Funding Programs
November 15 @ 1:30 pm CST
Tribal Governments are critical partners in achieving the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s mission to protect human health and the environment, especially as the climate changes. Consistent with the Agency’s policy on Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribes, EPA is offering your tribe the opportunity to consult on the financial assistance programs identified in the Inflation Reduction Act (consultation offer attached).
The EPA will hold a 60-day Tribal consultation period from October 28 -December 27, 2022, to collect input from Tribes, based on the general programs authorized by the Inflation Reduction Act. The EPA will hold an informational webinar November 15, 2022, for Tribal governments to learn more about the Inflation Reduction Act. The Dear Tribal Leader Letter includes questions that Tribes may wish to consider for the consultation as well.
If your tribe would like to initiate government-to-government consultation with the EPA, submit comments or ask questions, you are welcome to contact me at (202) 564-1082 or firstname.lastname@example.org by December 20, 2022. I look forward to hearing from you.
